    Ugh, a whole week and no updates to my journal. I have been so busy at work the past couple of weeks and I am running on empty. Looking forward to the weekend, hopefully I can catch up.

    Breakfast: 2 hardboiled eggs (s&P and olive oil)

    Lunch: Flank stake cooked in paprika and other misc spices. Side dish: sautee (in ghee) green peppers and tomatoes

    Dinner: I was too tired to cook so I picked up chipotle, barbacoa, green peppers and onion, guac, lettuce and some cheese.

    Dessert: 1 square of 86% chocolate and a glass of merlot

    1 hour belly dance

    I have been unusually hungry lately. I had been trying IF for breakfast the first weeks but now when i wake up in the morning my stomach is SCREAMING for something

    Breakfast: Primal fuel with strawberries

    Lunch: rotisserie chicken breast. side dish: lettuce and tomato salad. (bo-ring)

    We had a dinner engagement at someones house soooo....

    Chicken which was fried in peanut oil (is it allowed?) and it had some home made version of a sweet/sour sauce which I know had sugar in it (!), sauteed shrimp with ground pork in a spicy sauce, the only option for side dish was white rice so I had about a tablespoon of it. Not very primal at all but I had no option

    Oh and I had my white wine glass refilled enough times to cause a nice headache this morning.

    Back on the wagon!

    Another long hiatos, I am terrible at this journal keeping! I am going for an extra push to try and tone up and get rid of the remaining fat so I will try to keep up with this, as it helps.

    Monday
    1 hardboiled egg for breakfast, bunless hamburger for lunch with sautee mushrooms and onions, avocado salad.
    dinner was churrasco with home made chimichurri sauce, salad and asparagus.

    Tuesday
    AM Crossfit, Primal fuel shake immediately after
    lunch, another bunless burger with mushrooms, onions and bacon, brocolli on the side
    dinner was an experiment. I attempted to make lasagna. I substituted the noodles for zucchini. The flavor was there but the consistency was not. it was still good but I don't think I would call it lasagna! side dish was an avocado/arugula/bacon salad.

    2 chocolate squares for dessert.

    April 12th.

    Breakfast: IF
    Lunch: Curried ground beef with avocado/tomato/cilantro salad
    Dinner: beef/vegetable soup, 1/2 scottish eggs (I was out and I know this was fried in non primal oils) I also had about 4 bites of chicken quesadilla (flour tortilla, I KNOW!!) 1 pint of beer. I also had popcorn when I got home.

    Weekends are usually harder for me because I am out a lot. Instead of journaling what I ate I am going to journal on what I had that I wasn't suppossed to. maybe someone will yell at me...

    Friday, I was primal all day
    Saturday, went to a fair and there was a stand with good ol' root beer. I broke down and got a mug, it is the first taste of soda that I have since November. At dinner time, I made enchiladas since my hubby loves them and requested them, so the bad ingredient there were the tortillas, all else was primal.
    Sunday...(funday) all hell breaks loose! primal breakfast, for lunch we ended up going to a mexican restaurant and I had more tortillas (2), then dinner at the inlaws. They had primal choices for us but there was also mac n cheese for the kids and I indulged a little bit just because I used to LOVE mac n cheese and last week I was craving it, I wont buy it or make it but since it was there I figured.... I must say it wasn't as good as I remembered it to be.

    Hey there,

    I stumbled upon your journal when I was looking through the success stories in the making - probably should send in my update soon (oops). You seem to be eating a lot of the same foods as me - I have been wrapping everything in lettuce, too. Burgers, taco meat, cajun spiced shrimp - it all lands in a mound of greens and topped with avocado, tomato, cheese (no will power to cut out dairy completely).

    The intermittent fasting has sort of come naturally for me, I'm often just not hungry in the morning and then go work out instead (or not ).

    I'm a sucker for wine, beer, and cocktails - so that has definitely been in the way of losing the remaining pounds. I'm trying to stick with just wine now and only on 3 days of the week, making me alcohol-free for 4 days per week.

    Looking forward to following your progress!

    Thanks Anna!

    You totally sound like my food (and drink) twin. you can kill me with cheese so removing its difficult and I definitely enjoy my wine/beer/cocktails a little too much. Hopefully we can support each other on the way!

    April 17th

    am Crossfit
    Breakfast: fast
    Lunch: chicken breast and veggies, it was kinda bland not my proudest kitchen moment. avocado salad.
    Dinner: Sauteed Mahi and side of zuccinni with bacon. this was actually really good meal.

    No snacks and no dessert. (boooo)
